WordPerfect for the IIe and IIc Version 1.1


Published 1986


With roots as far back as 1977 and a first appearance on Data General computers with the name SSI*WP, the software that became WordPerfect was a product businesses knew intimately by 1986. WordPerfect had just rocked the word processing world with a lauded 4.0 release for DOS. The same 4.0 rocketed WordPerfect to the top of the charts virtually sealing WordStar's fate and keeping a struggling Microsoft Word at bay for at least a few more years.

Not content to rest on its successes, SSI/WordPerfect Corporation had by 1986 desired to be on as many platforms as possible. Some of those were not so successful, but WordPerfect 1.0 and 1.1 for the Apple //e and //c was one of the company's sales stars. Although perhaps released toward the nadir of the command-line world -- and certainly after the introduction of the Macintosh and Microsoft's Windows -- it offered a word processing experience for Apple II users that DOS users had enjoyed for quite a few years. Indeed, it was the only version available for Apple computers. A Macintosh version would not appear until 1988.
